Soundwall Nova: Stream Music From a Work of Art

Soundwall Nova

Soundwall just recently revealed its new Nova speaker. Nova adds interactive ambient mood lighting and music playback control. If you’re unfamiliar with Soundwall, it’s a WIP Bluetooth speaker disguised as a beautiful piece of artwork. Soundwall allows you to stream your favourite music wirelessly from a beautiful work of art. Soundwall produces flat-panel speakers made of aluminum artwork that fills your entire space with rich, natural sound.

Touch The Art To Control Your Music.

Rather than keeping a bulky plastic speaker on your desk or in your study, you can hang a work of art on your wall. This work of art can then conveniently double as a great Bluetooth sound system. You can choose art from their collection of artists or upload your own to create a personalized experience. The latest Soundwall – Nova, lets you touch the art to control your music and set mood lighting to create an ambiance.

Magic Touch.

Soundwall can either be thought of as an aluminum artwork that plays music or just a flat-panel speaker disguised as a painting. Its new iteration Nova, however, steps things up a notch by turning it into a touch-enabled art that can play music with a light show. Nova’s Magic Touch feature gives you the power to play, pause and skip songs — streamed from your phone through Bluetooth — by touching the artwork.

Dye Sublimation.

Soundwall applies 200-year archival inks onto aluminum panels via dye-sublimation to produce rich, vibrant art that lasts for generations. The Soundwall is made of aluminum. The art is transferred onto the panels using a process called dye sublimation.

Revolutionary Sound Technology.

The entire surface of a Soundwall is a speaker. They use Distributed Mode Loudspeaker (DML) technology to produce brilliant sound. On the back of the aluminum art there are exciters mounted that vibrate the surface to produce incredible, full-range sound throughout your room.

Stream Music Wirelessly.

You can stream your music wirelessly via Bluetooth or WiFi to play music on Soundwall. With over 150 works of art to choose from, you can nd an original piece that beautifully complements your space or uploads your own.

Mood Lights.

Choose from a variety of dynamic ambient backlighting presets to enhance the mood. A deep blue for smooth jazz, a warm red for something romantic or a simple, elegant white backlight to keep things simple. You can use the Soundwall app to control your backlighting. Touch your art to play, pause or skip songs with ease.

Pretty Expensive.

You can get a Soundwall through its website for a minimum of $900. It’s a bit pricey, but then again, some people might see it as getting a piece of art and a speaker at the same time. If you do buy Nova through the website, you’ll have around 150 designs to choose from, though you can always upload your own for the most personalized option yet. Soundwall works with world-renowned artists across a diverse offering of genres to help you choose an aesthetic that complements and blends with your space.
